I haven't followed the magazine for a while, but, at least at one
time, the folks at _Film Threat_ magazine could be helpful in finding
stuff like that.  Even though I didn't see any info about finding or
ordering videos on the first page of their website, it is probably worth dropping them a line.
I beleive there is a QuickTime movie clip available from Visual
Frenzy at and another available
from Film Zone at
According to the site, it was shown via CuSeeMe at the end of 1995.
Perhaps someone at Visual Frenzy or Film Zone can help you see it.
Hope this helps.
